Description
This chapter summarizes some of the key concepts and relationships of single-variable statistics that we might find useful for characterizing measurements, particularly when we have measured a quantity at multiple times, or we’ve measured many individual members of a population or collection. This is not intended to be an exhaustive introduction to statistics, and does not in any way substitute for a proper statistics course. It does, however, point to some connections that we can make between the measurement and characterization of data and the scientific description of nature that we sometimes seek.
